    Hello to all,

    My local Sears store has this TV in a Floor Model sale for
    $329.99. I know you guys say "Stay Away From Floor Models",
    but this is half off the original price of last years model of $699.99. They offer a 5 year in home extended warr. for $170.00.

    Is this a good bargain to get and if so should I get the ex. warrenty as well.


    Thanks to all who respond

    Beau

    Well, there's a reason for the consensus against purchasing a floor-model display. All but the boutique, high-end specialty stores run these things in full torch mode. And a picture tube can be ruined very quickly that way, in some cases in a matter of hours. Your choice. I would never consider anything but a brand-new display, fresh out of its carton.

    And if it it was set on Samsung's "STANDARD" picture mode setting the setting on the Picture (Contrast) is turned up all the way. I did see one review in S&V Mag. of a Samsung HDTV set & in the test results they mentioned that after only 10 sceonds in the "STANDARD" mode that the color phosphors started to burn. But again for the price if Sears will let you return it you might want to give it a shot.
